Colin has been a great rider but has had his day.
This bike deserves a young hot-shot on it to really get the best results. Colin is not going to push to the limit anymore and who can blame him. A few more pay cheques and he'll be calling it a day. Why risk ending up crocked for life.

so basically, the chassis is crap and they need a new one, but they are going to patch up the issues with electronics....? Great work!

Oh, and Colin is there for one reason, to develop the bike.

This is not the way I wanted to see Colin end his career.
Any of the super bikes would have had Colin racing/smiling at the front,this bike is gonna be a first class turd in the depression department for him:(

It makes you wonder if it has been the high front engine mount which has been hobbling Leon Haslam ? I'm assuming that the position of the mounting is dictated by the engine, and not by Colin's Suter chassis.

@ thegreatnumberseven

you having a laugh??? Colin is probably the best rider to have on that bike to develop it.

The problems are inherant with the BMW engine design- which was their 2nd choice, they did want to use R1 engines but Yamaha wouldnt support them.
Its like Colin is saying this bike is never going to work!

tetely is on the right track... they have already had different chassis so if they could easily move it they would have... ive always thought the BMW engine looked taller and less compact... I want to see more pics like this that chassis is a piece of work right there

Makes you wonder how that so called best developement rider Troy Corser (never believed that) never came out with this after 3 years of riding the thing? It has been said by others.
CRT justified in one sentence, now Suter/Forward need to develope different mountings for the casings and sell them to BMW.
